September 14th is always an auspicious day at Chez Montreuil, as it marks Reg the Cat’s birthday. This, the second part of “The Story of Reg; so far…;), deals with the period between Him leaving Brampton and His arrival in Toronto, circa December 12, 2012 – February 02, 2013.

I hope that no one thinks that I was angry when I wrote my last column. If anything, I was just disappointed, especially with the Hall and Oates concert which we attended last year. I had paid a fair bit of money, (and don’t get me going on the ticket reseller scam, or I WILL get angry!), for some ostensibly choice seats, only to be confronted by a writhing geriatric “mosh pit” poised between the stage and ourselves. Anyone who reads this and who wishes to assail me with accusations of “ageism”, I am 63 years old, so take your best shot, although the ice beneath your feet will be very thin indeedÂ đŸ˜‰!

Last week’s column was the first of several on my olde office, for after all, when one works for nearly 20 years in the same place, it’s more like a marriage than a fling!

Roxanne Tellier – The Very Bad, Icky, Nasty, Not At All Good Week

Posted in Opinion, Review with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on June 10, 2018 by segarini

I am sick of living in interesting times.

I cannot make any sense of a world where good people hurt so badly that they have to take their own lives, while horrible, nasty, evil people appear to thrive.

More years ago than I care to talk about, I was the president of a small plastic modelling club. We met on a regular basis and had a few displays throughout the year. My personal motto during that time was “A leader leads.”

For much of the 20th and 21st Centuries, the president of the United States has been the “de facto” leader of the Free World, a consensus builder, a calming influence. Previous American administrations have enacted legislation beneficial to great numbers of people. Some examples?
